Description of the flag

Belgrade municipality of Cukarica approved in 1997 the proposals of coat of arms and flag made by Serbian Heraldry Society in 1994.

Meaning of the flag is:

  • Geographic characteristics: River Sava and hilly terrain
  • Industry: Shape of border
  • Agriculture: wheat.

Ivan Sarajcic, 5 June 1999

Adoption of the flag

There was an old proposal (from 1993) with trefoil Vert between sugar-loaf Argent wrapped Azure dexter and a wheat sheaf Or bound Gules. The design of the new coat of arms and flag was a matter of dispute between members of the Committee of Cukarica Borough Assembly. When the final voting came, the votes were divided according to the Party membership, so that even those members of the Comittee who voted pro as members of the Committee voted contra as members of the Assembly. However, the voting gave an overwhelming majority to the new proposed concept (with the cross, as a Christian symbol). The cross has nothing to do with the Swedish cross.
